Coronavirus Challenge: Woman Licks Airplane Toilet Seat To Go Viral

Netizens slammed an influencer after promoting a “coronavirus challenge” that involves licking a toilet seat on the plane. But with the growing criticism, social media star Ava Louise admitted she created the now viral video because she "wanted more attention than this corona b----.”

The 22-year-old from Miami posted the video on TikTok on Saturday. She said in the caption of the 6-second clip that plane toilet licking should help “know how to properly be sanitary on the airplane.”

Louise has been on “Dr. Phil” twice. She has been accused of being “clout-chaser” on social media, Fox News reported Monday.

She currently has 19,000 followers on TikTok and 150,000 on Instagram. But not all of her followers appreciated the viral TikTok video amid the growing concerns with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Some people responded with disgust on Twitter and called Louise out for using the serious medical issue to get attention. One famous critic is Meghan McCain who said the social media star should be jailed. 

Louise admitted that she promoted the coronavirus challenge just for "clout." She licked the toilet seat because she was "tired of some b---- named corona getting more publicity than ME," Insider reported Monday.

"I just wanted more attention than this corona b---- but she's GOOD," Louise told Insider. "So I capitalized off her. And now I'm like global news. My mom told me she's proud of me I shed light on pandemic while wearing Fendi sunglasses ... The serve."

She claimed that "hot blondes" can recover from anything and that they are “immune” to the coronavirus "just like the gays." But the social media star also used the viral video to spread  awareness of other social issues.

Louise said on Twitter that as more people now are checking her page, they should know the bad effects of racism and that “gay people are good.”

“Transphobia is grosser than me licking a toilet,” she wrote. 

Meanwhile, Louise’s coronavirus challenge does not appear to be getting some participants on social media. It comes as health authorities and doctors have been encouraging people to practice good hygiene to reduce the risk of contracting COVID-19.
